Rodney Andrew is a master “lampworker” who creates unique glasswork inspired by nature. His original art is a type of glasswork that employs a gas fueled torch to melt rods and tubes of clear and colored glass. Once in a molten state, the glass is formed by blowing and shaping with a variety of tools and hand movements. This technique has been widely used in Murano, Italy since the 14th century.
Early lampworking was done in the flame of an oil lamp, with the artist blowing air into the flame through a pipe. Most modern lampworkers use torches burning propane, natural gas, butane or pure oxygen.
Mr. Andrew’s work is a fine example of modern lampworking and is highly prized for collections.
Mr. Andrew will be present for the reception, as well as other artists in at the gallery.
The Decatur Market & Gallery is a co-operative gallery for emerging artists and unique artisans of Georgia.
